Learn WordPress!


If you have or want to have a WordPress Web site, this is the meet-up for you! Come and meet others who are working on projects that require Web presence. We usually just sit and work on our projects with our laptops. People help each other. If you have a blog it is also a good chance to sit down and work on your content.

We’re doing a get together tomorrow night. Bring your laptop and come and hang out. Atomic has free wifi.

Tuesday, August 16th, 6-7pm, 303 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario (Atomic Rooster)

Please let me know so I can reserve the right sized table.

CNC Meetup

When: Tuesday August 2nd, 6-7pm

We can have a follow up at ModLab on Wednesday 7pm (2 Daly, ask for Artengine at front desk).

Proposed agenda:
6-6:10pm: Social
6:10-6:50: Round table (everyone can tell about their projects and what challenges they are facing)
6:50+: We can all reflect on the issues and see who has answers.
Let me know by tomorrow morning if you’re coming so I can book a table.
If that time slot doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll make the next one in a different time slot. Perhaps I can alternate between a couple of timeslots.

WordPress Lab (you’re invited!)

I am helping a couple of my friends with their WordPress blogs and I realize that knowing how to maintain a blog might be of general interest to the community.

I propose that we have a regular meetup. Perhaps every 2-3 weeks. At the meeting we will not just talk about wordpress but we will encourage that we bring our laptops and work on our real wordpress issues. Let’s not just talk about WordPress, let’s “get busy”.

Anybody who’s interested please let me know! As soon as I have two people I will start the meetup.
